The objective of a minor in safety is to allow students in other disciplines to supplement their major knowledge with safety training. For example, students may wish to major in chemistry and minor in safety and thus enhance their chances of being employed in an industry where a strong knowledge of safety programs is needed. Students with the following majors would find a safety minor to be of particular interest: engineering technology, technology, biological sciences, chemistry, criminal justice, and management.
Students minoring in safety should be qualified for a wide variety of employment opportunities with local, state, and federal agencies, as well as with industry. Graduates of this program would be able to offer employers the alternative of hiring an academically qualified safety officer as opposed to the expensive alternative of retraining an employee in safety management.
In addition to meeting the requirements for admission to the university, applicants must apply to the Department of Environmental Health.
